Review Flipchart Games

With the NC READY Assessments approaching, we have put together some review flipchart games for you to play with your students. Some of the games are the same as last year, however we have added (and will continue to add) more games. There are blank templates for each game as well, so you have the option to create your own game from one of the templates.

You can find the games here: http://goo.gl/SsiQ9y

If you have any questions, please let me know because I would love to come in and 'play' the game with your class or meet with your team to discuss how to use the flipchart games in your classrooms.


Flippity.net allows you to turn a Google Spreadsheet into a set of flash cards or even a Quiz Show (similar to Jeopardy). It is very easy to use! Here are some directions on how to create your own Flippity Flash Card or Quiz Show:

Quizzity - A Geography Game

Quizzity is a fun and easy geography game that you and your students can play! In Quizzity, you are given the name of a city and then you have to click on the map on where you think that city is located. The closer you are to the city's exact location, the more points you will earn!

To play Quizzity, just go to this link:
